ARTISTdirect has teamed up with Pool Cosby to stream their EP, Can't Wait.
The Brooklyn-based collective Pool Cosby formed in the summer 2012 by Joseph Caravalho and Andrew "DruTang" Klein. Both artists have impressive resumes in the music industry. DruTang has produced for Mac Miller and Wiz Khalifa, while Joe has engineered albums for 50 Cent and Melanie Fiona. He's also assisted on albums for Trey Songz, Sean Paul, AraabMuzik, Theophilus London, Big K.R.I.T. and more. The live show features Joe Caravalho, Kristine Kruta on cello, Nacor Zuluaga Morelo on drums, Kevin Kuh and violin and Alex Wong on viola.
The band will be performing at Piano's in NYC on Monday, July 1 –that's today-- to celebrate the EP release. The first 50 people to arrive get a free copy of Can't Wait. "Can't Wait took about three months to make on my end," Caravalho told us. "Kristine Kruta, who arranges all the string parts, is just insanely talented and was able to do everything in a couple of days. Our first release was the self-titled full length and that album was arranged to tell a story. Can’t Wait is a collection of songs that sounded right together. We have a ton of songs that are just waiting for the right package to release. These songs were right for this EP. It was exactly where I wanted to go next. I didn’t want to just throw a song out; I wanted to have a finished product with the right flow of a proper EP, front to back. Even if it means taking months after the first song is done to find similar tracks to package together. After I had the right songs and the EP was ready to go, I handed it over to the amazing team at Engine Room. It was mixed by Gabe MG and mastered by Dan Millice. The two of them are definitely a big part of the sound. They are part of Pool Cosby which, at its simplest is me and a laptop, but at its best it is me, Kristine, Nacor, Kevin, Alex, Gabe and Dan."
